8) Women communicate using power talk; most men communicate using straight talk.
Straight talk means my words are exactly what I say and my meaning is clear.
Power talk means my words are meant to get what I want and allow me to avoid taking responsibility if necessary.
Additionally, women communicate on a subliminal, implied, and emotional level. This is why arguing with a woman is pointless: because she is not listening to what you say—she is only concerned with the fact you are arguing, and in her eyes, are in emotional, subliminal, and implied opposition.
That doesn’t mean it’s necessarily easier to convince a man to agree with you—but his reason will be based on the argument, not the fact that you were disagreeing (unless he’s an idiot/partisan–when it comes to politics basically everyone is a moron).
No argument here, but I would like to add my own twist.
When a man says, “I’m going to go rake up the leaves in the back yard.”, he means that he is going to go rake up the leaves in the backyard.
When a woman says, “I’m going to go rake the leaves up in the backyard.”, she means that she wants you to go rake up the leaves in the backyard while she watches for a bit to make sure you’re doing correctly before she goes back inside to get on Facebook to say they you’re both so busy raking up leaves. Whew.
Men are giving information to women, women are trying to get something from men.
